WINNING! MassResistance Pressure Pays Off, Forces Fake Man from Office of Republican Women Federated Group


“Transgender" man elected as president of California Republican women’s group! He finally resigned after pressure ignited by MassResistance.

RINO statewide Chairman of the group had distorted by-laws to expel women who voiced outrage.

Another example of the GOP establishment’s embrace of LGBT radicalism – and the need to fight back.

February 24, 2022
ALT TEXT Gina Roberts is a busy man. Besides being the "female" president of a GOP women's group, he was vice-president of the state-wide homosexual group Log Cabin Republicans of California.

One of the biggest divides between conservative Republicans and the establishment RINOs (who run the Party) is over the radical LGBT agenda.

The situation has worsened recently. As we’ve reported (herehere, and here), for years the LGBT movement has dominated CPAC (the so-called Conservative Political Action Conference), where Republican leaders annually go to pontificate. Last year, the Republican National Committee and President Trump formally announced their “Pride Coalition” to fully integrate the LGBT movement into the Republican Party. In November, twenty-one Republican Congressmen co-sponsored the so-called “Fairness Act” which would have embedded the radical LGBT demands in federal law. It’s not just the national GOP. Last year, every Republican State Representative in Massachusetts but one signed a statement that religious beliefs against homosexual behavior are “inappropriate and disturbing” and have no place in the Republican Party.

But at a certain point the rank and file need to step up and draw the line.

In November 2020, a MassResistance activist in southern California contacted Arthur Schaper, our Organization Director (who lives in the area). She was very upset because the Escondido chapter of the California Federation of Republican Women had just elected a cross-dressing “transgender” man as its next president. She could not believe this was happening! She begged MassResistance to get involved and help overturn this.

ALT TEXT Gina Roberts was sworn in as president of the CFRW Escondido chapter by "conservative" Congressman Darrell Issa, as the other RINOS in the group looked on.

Background: California Federation of Republican Women

The California Federation of Republican Women (CFRW) was founded in 1925 to give women a voice in politics and governance at the local, state, and national levels. Women tended to vote Republican after receiving the franchise in 1920 (and in some states, before the 19th Amendment had passed). This was because it was Republicans who had pressed for them to get the vote. The National Federation of Republican Women formed in 1938. So the institution has a long history. California’s chapter is still one of the largest in the country, having numerous local units throughout the state.

According to the organization’s by-laws, men can only join as associate members. They cannot vote and they cannot become officers of the club.

Cross-dressing man identifies as a Republican “woman”

The man who was elected to be the Escondido chapter president calls himself “Gina” Roberts. He had already been making a name for “herself” by pushing the transgender agenda into the California Republican Party as a “Log Cabin Republican” member, and by getting elected to various local town boards. He received glowing press from the leftist media.

ALT TEXT The leftist media ate it up!

Not surprisingly, a few months after his election, the national CPAC convention (in March 2021)  welcomed Roberts (along with well-known “gay” Republican Ric Grenell) with open arms.

ALT TEXT Gina's tweet from CPAC.

MassResistance gets to work!

MassResistance was determined to help California’s Republican women halt this insanity.

Arthur began contacting other CFRW units throughout the state. Many of these women are dedicated MassResistance supporters and activists in pro-family battles across California.

Members of the South Bay CFRW group in San Diego filed official letters with their state leadership. Other members informed their club leaders that they would leave the organization if the state and national leaders did not rectify this situation.

CFRW state leaders: In the “trans” tank

Arthur contacted the leaders of the Escondido group to find out why they would allow this. Shockingly, previous club leaders and officers at the time engaged in non-stop gaslighting: “She is a woman. We did elect a woman to be our President,” they told Arthur. Their denial of reality was truly disturbing.

The leadership in some local units, as well as in the state organization, sounded off with the usual excuses: “We have our orders. We cannot do anything about it. We will get sued if we try to prevent him from becoming a member as a woman,” they said.

The CFRW state leadership was particularly adamant that Gina Roberts should continue to lead Escondido group.

ALT TEXT It's not just the CFRW leadership. This is supported by the state GOP. Here is Gina with California State GOP Chairman Jessica Patterson. (Apparently, Patterson has succumbed to the "transgender mass formation psychosis" that's going around.)

But across the country: More outrage!

Arthur reached out to Federation of Republican Women chapters across the country as well, urging them to pressure the National Federation leaders to do something to stop this. The Montana and Idaho chapters, and to some extent Virginia's, were supportive. The Texas chapter was the best. One Texas RFW group reacted to MassResistance’s call by changing their by-laws to include only “biological” women! The national office, however, was not interested in getting involved.

The California backlash grows

As word got out, more and more Republican women became angry. As an American Thinker article noted:

Immediately, MassResistance activists in the club, as well as surrounding CFRW clubs, started sharing and protesting how the organization’s leadership had rejected its own bylaws. They and others wondered why they should elect Republicans with an eye to smaller government, lower taxes, strong military, right-to-life, pro-Second Amendment, adherence to the U.S. Constitution, and all the other GOP talking points if the Republicans are going to vote and act like Democrats?

A MassResistance activist in Orange County who was a local CFRW member was furious. She began an email campaign, writing to other CFRW members across the state. She sounded the alarm that men were taking over women’s Republican positions. And she castigated the “woke agenda” taking over the California Republican Party.

October 2021: The state CFRW convention

In October 2021, during the statewide CFRW convention, the Orange County MassResistance activist and several others spoke out and even attempted to introduce an emergency amendment. But the leadership took extraordinary steps to silence them. As American Thinker reported:

Some members at the organization’s October 2021 convention in Rancho Mirage pushed back against the CFRW executive board’s unilateral decision that “woman” should be based on identity rather than biology. To that end, they attempted to bring an emergency bylaw amendment to the floor.

Yet each time someone came to the microphone, leadership cut off the mic and angrily told the member that she was out of order. Finally, one woman walked away from the turned-off microphone and yelled into the cavernous conference room about what was happening.

Some members were learning about this issue for the first time. Others had known but thought they were the only ones who felt it was wrong. A few had complained to the executive board and were called transphobic.

Several were annoyed that “conservative” Congressman Darrell Issa went along with the woke parade. “Republicans like Issa are exactly what is wrong with the Republican Party,” claimed one frustrated member adding, “Why should I volunteer my time to elect woke Republicans?”

Two CA chapters leave the organization

All of this only ignited more outrage across the state. Soon after the October convention, the East Valley and San Clemente CFRW chapters – including over two thousand members – voted to break away from their parent organization. (East Valley CFRW is now East Valley Republican Patriots. San Clemente Area CFRW is now East Valley Area Republican Women.) Reportedly, there were several issues roiling those groups, but the trangender issue was the final straw!

Retribution against conservative member!

In retaliation for this MassResistance activist’s efforts to expose the flagrant violation of the organization’s by-laws, Janet Price, the state CWFR president, wrote a letter to the woman’s local chapter, stating that she could no longer be a member of the CWFR local club or of the federated groups as a whole!

Price concocted a series of Orwellian arguments, asserting violations of various bylaws: (1) not “cooperating with the California Republican Party”; (2) “working against the goals of CFRW” and the national group; and (3) violating an ethical ban not to “speak disparagingly in public of any Republican or candidate.” (This absurd ban would keep a member running in a GOP primary from speaking critically of her opponent.)

A few weeks later, her chapter formally kicked her out, and sent her a check refunding her dues.

Of course, this only inflamed the situation even more. She continued to write extensively about this, and more CFRW members became angry at their RINO leadership.

Gina Roberts resigns!

These efforts, along with the ongoing reports and complaints from other chapters around the state, clearly made an impact. On February 7, 2022, Gina Roberts finally resigned from the Escondido CFRW chapter. The official reason given for his resignation (as told to us by one of the Escondido officers) was an employment commitment.

Final thoughts

Republican activists across California are grateful to MassResistance for taking on this battle.

Many Republican women were extremely upset when they heard about this ridiculous, unnatural, and lunatic situation. But they felt alone and feared retribution by the often vicious RINO establishment. (It’s a common tactic among totalitarians of all stripes. The “cancel culture” also in exists in the leftist GOP.)

MassResistance made it safe for them to speak their minds – and demand a stop to this outrageous and degrading situation. This may seem to have been a small battle in the larger scheme of things, but it represents something much bigger!

Montana MassResistance: Pastor Files for Bankruptcy in Fight Against LGBT Hate


Huge LGBT libel case against Montana pastor stalled after his bankruptcy filing this week

Jordan Hall, Baptist pastor and publisher of popular conservative news site, being sued for libel by transgender lobbyist and well-funded LGBT “lawfare” mob

Far-left Judge had scheduled hearing Feb. 16 to determine whether pastor is a “dangerous person,” subject to fines even before his trial

Pastor forced to file for bankruptcy in federal court

February 18, 2022
ALT TEXT Pastor Jordan Hall is principled and fearless. That's why the LGBT movement is out to destroy him.

Pastor Jordan Hall, a conservative pastor who is the publisher of Montana’s largest and most influential conservative news site, has been forced to file for personal bankruptcy as he faces a massive LGBT lawsuit. Even before his trial, the judge was expected to impose fines in a hearing that had been scheduled for Feb. 16. That proceeding was suddenly postponed once Hall filed for bankruptcy.

As we reported earlier this week, Pastor Hall is publisher of the Montana Daily Gazette. He is being sued for libel and $250,000 damages by Adrian Jawort, a “transgender” American Indian activist who is also a registered lobbyist at the Montana State Capitol. Jawort – a man who wears a dress and heavy makeup, and stands 6’3” in women’s heels – claims that Hall libeled him in an article describing a confrontation allegedly involving Jawort and some legislators at the Capitol. As we described, this case has no merit and would be thrown out in any normal court setting.

Not your regular State Capitol lobbyist. From Jawort’s public Facebook page: Christian verses certainly seem to anger this fellow. The Satanic horns, inverted cross on his forehead, and blood dripping from his mouth indicate where he’s coming from.

However, Jawort is represented by a group of well-funded leftist attorneys who have already spent an estimated $150,000 against Hall – and the trial has not even started.

In addition, Jawort’s lawyers were able to get the case moved away from Hall’s home county to a judge, Elizabeth Best, who is arguably the most ruthlessly left-wing in the state. She has already shown her strong bias against Hall. In a recent court filing, she characterized his Gazette article as employing “an offensive and ignorant epithet used by transphobic people, obviously aimed at demeaning Jawort.”

Judge Best had scheduled a special preliminary hearing for this past Wednesday, Feb. 16, to determine if Hall is a “threat” to public order. Jawort’s lawyers claim that Hall’s use of Bible quotes and Christian imagery when speaking about the lawsuit constituted “threats” to the plaintiff, his attorneys, and the judge. According to information we had, Judge Best was very likely to fine Hall up to hundreds of thousands of dollars – before the trial even started.

Pastor Hall forced to file for personal bankruptcy

On Monday, Feb. 14, Pastor Hall filed for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in federal bankruptcy court. Pastor Hall has not discussed any details about this. But according to a news report, his filing “listed assets of less than $50,000 and that attorneys’ fees were the primary driver of his bankruptcy, and those bills ranged between $100,000 and $500,000.”

Judge Best put a “stay” on the Feb. 16 hearing. The Daily Montanan newspaper explained:

Hall’s bankruptcy filing also puts an immediate stay, or halt, to any legal proceedings, meaning that it instantly stops the sanctions hearing that was scheduled for Wednesday. The stay is in effect for as long as 30 days, and Judge Benjamin P. Hursh [the federal bankruptcy judge] may ultimately decide how the case will proceed.

A seemingly impossible situation for Pastor Hall

Going into personal bankruptcy is certainly a horrible situation. Although Pastor Hall has not discussed this, it’s easy to see the seemingly untenable situation he was put in.

He and his attorney are facing a team of leftist lawyers who have unlimited funding to destroy him. He is up against a far-left judge who has already shown extreme bias against him, including allowing the opposing lawyers to impose an aggressive and invasive “discovery” process that clearly goes beyond any objective necessity for the case. There was a strong feeling that the judge was preparing to declare him a “threat” and impose a huge fine on him.

ALT TEXT Judge Elizabeth Best [Great Falls Tribune photo]

Just how bad is Judge Best? Here’s what Bart Crabtree, President of the Montana Citizens Council on Judicial Accountability, recently wrote about this case:

Eighth judicial district court judge Elizabeth Best is arguably one of the worst judges ever to sit on the bench. There is case after case in Cascade County of her usurping our state statutes, violating judicial canon of ethics, and a character of intemperance. Her appointment to this particular case is by design and of no surprise. She believes she is the master rather than a servant of the people, and is not liked in Cascade County where there is a fervent desire to have her removed. She has already demonstrated undue bias towards Mr. Hall in statements she has apparently made, according to the [Sidney, MT] Herald, which automatically disqualifies her as judge in the case, per MCA 3-1-805.

After the trial is over, the only appeal is to the Montana Supreme Court, which is very left-leaning. It already has ruled against Hall on one issue regarding this case that would have seemed obvious – whether Jawort is a “limited public figure.” So there is no confidence that Hall would get a fair hearing there. (Maybe this must go to the U.S. Supreme Court?)

Final thoughts

Jordan Hall’s real “crime” is being unafraid to publish the truth about the LGBT agenda. The “libel” charge is a red herring concocted to bludgeon him. His Daily Montana Gazette may be the most widely read news site in the state. That’s why the Left wants to destroy it – and him.

It is unfortunate that in a “red state” like Montana – where Republicans have super-majorities in both houses of the Legislature and hold all statewide elected offices, that the judiciary is largely left-wing. According to people we talk to there, this is because the state’s only law school is at the left-leaning University of Montana.

Pastor Jordan Hall is, sadly, paying the price for being principled and fearless. But this fight isn’t over! You can help support him here.

Montana MassResistance: Bold Pastor Fights Against LGBT-Based Libel Lawsuit

 Free speech and free press under huge assault in Montana by LGBT legal network

Jordan Hall, Baptist pastor and publisher of popular conservative news site, sued for libel by transgender lobbyist

State’s left-wing legal establishment & well-funded LGBT “lawfare” mob seek to stop site’s influential voice

Far-left Judge to hold preliminary hearing Feb. 16 to determine whether pastor is a “dangerous person"

February 15, 2022
ALT TEXT Pastor Jordan Hall with his wife and five children.

A conservative pastor who is the publisher of Montana’s largest and most influential conservative news site is being sued for “libel” by a bizarre transgender lobbyist. The leftist judge assigned to the case is also threatening the pastor with fines and a gag order even before the trial takes place.

This assault on free speech and free press is buttressed by the state’s far-left legal establishment and appears to be funded by the wealthy LGBT and Planned Parenthood lobby. The aggressive legal action, including an invasive “discovery” process of the pastor’s media operation, is clearly aimed to put the conservative news site and its subsidiary voices out of business. The radicals would even like to dictate what the pastor may say in his own church.


Montana Democrats are still reeling from the Republican blowout victory in the 2020 election. Republicans now have a super-majority in both houses of the Legislature, and hold the Governorship and all statewide offices (Attorney General, Secretary of State, Supervisor of Public Instruction, Auditor).

ALT TEXT The Montana Capitol building in Helena

Paradoxically, the judiciary in Montana is dominated by leftists. The state’s only law school is at the very liberal University of Montana and the state’s lawyers – and thus the judges – are far more left-wing than the general population.

Just as in DC back in 2016, the Democrats’ response to the Republican sweep has been to lash out wildly. Leftist attorneys are using the liberal courts in Montana to challenge conservative bills passed in the 2021 legislative session (pro-life laws, the ban on transgender boys in girls’ sports, strengthening parents’ rights, reining in sex ed, strengthening election law, and banning discrimination on the basis of vaccination status). They are also contesting Attorney General Knudsen’s and Supervisor of Public Instruction Arntzen’s policies banning Critical Race Theory and declaring masks optional in schools.

One news site stands out

As in other conservative areas, the news media across the state is also horribly left-wing. The one prominent exception is the Montana Daily Gazette, published by Jordan (“JD”) Hall, who is also a Baptist minister. The Gazette is bold and straight-shooting, with a down-to-earth style – and is definitely not “PC.” It has caught the attention of Montanans tired of the other news outlets. On many days, the Gazette often claims the highest readership of any news source in Montana. Some say its fearless reporting contributed to the Republican sweep in the 2020 election.


Hall is also very influential in Montana through his other conservative Christian media. He runs the well-respected religious blog Protestia, the podcast Pulpit & Pen, and a radio station. He shares Christian truth without reservation.

While many conservatives are becoming reluctant to speak out publicly on hot-button issues, Pastor Hall is fearless – and has definitely become a thorn in the side of the Left in Montana.

Bizarre transgender lobbyist in the Montana Capitol

Adrian Jawort identifies as “transgender” and is a member of the Northern Cheyenne tribe. He is also a registered lobbyist in the Montana legislature. He is quite a sight in that building. As his own attorneys describe him:

Adrian is physically distinctive: Native American, transgender, 6’3” in heels, always dressed in black dresses and hosiery, her [sic] black hair trimmed short on the sides with curls falling down her [sic] forehead.

ALT TEXT Mr. Jawort dressed for his pro-transgender lobbying at the Montana Capitol in 2021. He was especially angry over the bill to outlaw “transgender” surgical procedures for minors and the bill (now law) to ban transgender boys from girls’ sports. (Photo from Hall’s May 3, 2021 Gazette column)

In the 2021 session, Jawort lobbied against the (successful) bill banning “transgender” boys in girls’ sports, and the (failed) bill to ban surgical procedures to “transition” minors.

His demeanor and antics around the Capitol are infamous. According to Hall, Jawort and another transgender activist simulated sodomy in the Supreme Court chambers until told by security to leave.

ALT TEXT Photo in Hall’s report: Jawort (2nd from left) and friends in the Montana Supreme Court chambers.

Legislators were familiar with Jawort’s “torrent of obscene, angry social media posts that he published throughout the 2021 legislative session” (according to a court filing by Hall). Luckily, Hall took screen shots of some of those posts before Jawort deleted them.

We have been told that at first many legislators did not know Jawort was a lobbyist, but assumed he was a homeless man wandering around the building. Not surprisingly, “numerous legislators” had contacted Hall with concerns about Jawort’s lobbying style.

The incident

On April 22, 2021, one of the most controversial transgender bills of the legislative session, HB 112 (the bill barring transgender male students from participating on female sports teams), was scheduled for a vote on the Senate floor. Six or seven transgender activists, including Jawort, converged on the Montana Capitol that day to try to halt its passage. According to a court filing, Jawort made clear earlier in the day that he would vigorously lobby Senators to vote against HB 112.

Eyewitnesses later contacted Hall to report that Jawort and his cohorts, wearing Covid masks and makeup, encountered legislators in the Capitol hallways. Allegedly, there was some abusive language directed at the legislators, and one of them, an elderly Senator, had to be escorted away to avoid the disturbance.

The Montana Daily Gazette coverage – and alleged libel

Before publishing his report on the event, Jordan Hall contacted Jawort asking to get his side of the story. But Jawort refused to talk with him.

On May 3, 2021, the Montana Daily Gazette published Hall’s article, Who’s the Gothic Transvestite Haunting the Halls of the Montana Capitol? It did not hold back in its general description of Jawort, culled from the numerous phone calls Hall had received:

Fooling precisely no one, the man has been seen wandering the Montana State Capitol like an out-of-place Sasquatch in goth make-up, looking for a snack or someone to yell at. The ill-tempered, dress-wearing man was regularly seen in the gallery of both the House and Senate, chastising legislators with his wagging, giant man fingers, and sitting in fish-net stockings reapplying his make-up with all the precision of a birthday clown with a bad hangover.

The article also included these two profane quotes from Jawort’s social media posts:

Fascist fucks. Tomorrow I will file paperwork likely leading to a lawsuit challenging one of the many anti-trans bills. My reward will be seeing my name dragged through the mud. Being mocked by good Christians and doxxed…

Fight the power of the State of Montana. Fuck your #Montaliban theocracy. I am not a political pawn in a chess game–someone to be used for ‘culture war’ clout and fodder. I am a fucking Indigenous Queen of these Indian Lands.

Regarding the confrontation with legislators, the Gazette article simply had two sentences:

Reportedly, the angry transvestite and several of his associates had cornered Senator Butch Gillespie in an angry tirade. Also reportedly, Montana Family Foundation President Jeff Laszloffy escorted Sen. Gillespie to the Sergeant of Arms for his protection.

Those two sentences are now at the center of the huge lawsuit. They would seem rather innocuous, especially given the larger context.

Jawort ignites over the article – files failed lawsuit

On July 12, 2021, Jawort filed a complaint against Hall in Richland County Court (where Hall’s hometown of Sidney is located). He demanded monetary damages for Hall’s “transphobic” statements and for supposedly “doxing” him (though Hall had included only publicly available information from Jawort’s public Facebook or tweets).

But there is no such crime as “transphobia” in Montana law (or US law), and the case went nowhere. Nevertheless, Jawort set up a GoFundMe page for his attempted lawsuit charging “transphobic hate speech.”

ALT TEXT Partial screen shot of Jawort’s GoFundMe page (accessed 2-13-22)

A new lawsuit – alleging libel

Soon after that, Jawort connected with a group of well-heeled leftist attorneys willing to take on his case. He is now being represented by Attorney Raph Graybill and two attorneys at the Upper Seven Law firm, Constance Van Kley and Rylee Sommers-Flanagan. Graybill is a well-known Montana attorney who recently ran for state Attorney General (losing 59%-41%). The Upper Seven Law firm is a social-justice group apparently set up for cases like this. All three attorneys clerked at the left-leaning Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

The attorneys re-filed the case and changed the charge to libel. They are focusing only on the two sentences cited above: "Reportedly, the angry transvestite and several of his associates had cornered Senator Butch Gillespie in an angry tirade. Also reportedly, Montana Family Foundation President Jeff Laszloffy escorted Sen. Gillespie to the Sergeant of Arms for his protection." 

They are claiming that Jawort was not present at that confrontation – not part of the group that accosted the legislators – so these are false, libelous statements. They assert that since the group was wearing masks, it was only assumed that Jawort was one of them. They are seeking $250,000 in damages from Hall.

The claim of libel would not appear to hold much water: (1) Hall’s article said only that Jawort was “reportedly” part of the group. That is not a false statement. (2) Despite a mask, Jawort is a very recognizable figure – a 6’3” man wearing a black dress with a distinctive voice. (3) Hall attempted to get Jawort’s side of the story, but Jawort refused. (4) By any sensible legal definition, Jawort is a “limited public figure” which in Montana requires a high standard for libel. (5) Hall relied on credible sources who identified Jawort as the individual who accosted the Senator, and as a credentialed journalist he does not have to reveal these sources.

The arguments put forth in Jawort’s lawyers’ filings appear to be very weak and amateurish, though strongly worded. Thus, in a normal court this would get very far. But this isn’t a normal situation at all.

Judge shopping

Through a series of events, Jawort’s lawyers were able to get the case heard in a different county under a judge, Elizabeth Best, who is arguably the most ruthlessly left-wing in the state. She is notorious among Montanans for her leftist judicial activism. (A petition has 2,325 signatures calling for her removal from the bench.)

ALT TEXT Judge Elizabeth Best [Great Falls Tribune photo]

Judicial bias and enormous legal harassment

Judge Best has not hidden her disdain for Pastor Hall. In one court ruling, she characterized his article as using “an offensive and ignorant epithet used by transphobic people, obviously aimed at demeaning Jawort.” Thus, the judge is accusing him of ignorance and “transphobia” – and even before the trial, exposes her belief that Hall intended to demean (libel) Jawort.

She has ruled that Jawort is not a “limited public figure,” and that the confrontation incident had no connection to Jawort’s work as a lobbyist. This means that the plaintiff does not have to prove “malice,” just “negligence” on Hall’s part.

Judge Best has allowed Jawort’s lawyers to conduct an enormous amount of legal harassment against Hall, mostly in for form of incredibly aggressive “discovery” demands, almost on a daily basis. Jawort’s lawyers are demanding records and other information on virtually everything about the Montana Daily Gazette business, plus extensive information about everyone who works there. He’s being told to provide his text messages and emails going back years on every person he’s contacted. He must provide copies of every sermon he has given, every manuscript he has written, and even his sermon and public speaking notes. Objections to this by Hall’s lawyer have been overruled by Judge Best. (Moreover, it is well known that Best is close friends with Graybill, Jawort's lawyer.)

It's been estimated that Jawort's legal team has already spent over $150,000 on this case - and the trial hasn't even begun.

Christian verses certainly anger this fellow. The Satanic horns, inverted cross on his forehead, and blood dripping from his mouth indicate where he’s coming from. (Photo: Jawort’s public Facebook page)

Special hearing on Wednesday, Feb. 16 to determine if Hall is a “threat” to public order

Pastor Hall’s actual trial hasn’t been scheduled. But Judge Best is conducting a special hearing on Wednesday, Feb. 16, to determine if Hall is a “threat” to public order.

Over the past few months, Hall has traveled around the state giving speeches in order to raise money for his legal defense. His lawyer says he will need a minimum of $100,000. His speeches are mostly to Christian groups. Being a Baptist pastor, Hall uses a lot of Bible quotes and Christian imagery. Jawort’s lawyers are charging – and Judge Best seems to be agreeing – that these speeches somehow constitute “threats” to the plaintiff, the judge, and others. (Of course, Hall has no history whatsoever of threats or violence.) The judge is prepared to impose extreme sanctions on Hall over this.

ALT TEXT Pastor Hall at a rally at the Montana Capitol in Helena. (Photo: Brandi Lyon)

Best is also angry that Hall is reluctant to follow her “mask mandate” in the courtroom. Montana has no mask mandates whatsoever at this time, and it is very questionable whether Best has the authority to impose one.

According to information we have, Best has likely decided to impose both judicial and financial sanctions at the hearing on Wednesday. The judicial sanctions could include a gag order or other limitations. The financial sanctions could be a fine anywhere from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars. It's also likely she could declare a default judgment against him, so a trial would not even be held.

This is the frightening state of affairs in the supposedly “red” state of Montana. We will report on what happens at the hearing.

Final thoughts

Throughout all this, the thing that has saddened Pastor Hall the most, he told us, is the number of conservative Christian pastors who have shied away from publicly supporting him. It’s not that they think he’s wrong. They privately admit that they are “afraid” of the LGBT movement and the power of the state. As one pastor told him, “I just can’t have them picketing my church.”

God Bless Jordan Hall. We need a thousand more like him. You can donate to his legal defense fund here.

Campaign Life Coalition, Canada: Social Conservatives Only


Dear Arthur,

With the political demise of Erin O’Toole, the flip-flopping, authoritarian Conservative Party Leader, there is a renewed sense of hope among Conservative Party members about who might replace him. For the first time in a long time, Conservatives are genuinely excited.

At the moment, MP Pierre Poilievre is the perceived front-runner in the upcoming Leadership contest to replace the pro-abortion O’Toole, and the only one who has officially jumped into the race.

Campaign Life Coalition has been receiving a steady stream of inquiries from our pro-life supporters about Poilievre, the MP for Carleton. Hopeful excitement is expressed by many, especially in light of his recent support for the freedom truckers and their demand to end all mandates related to the abortion-tainted COVID injections.

Can we get behind Poilievre?

Where does he stand on life issues?”, they ask.

There’s no doubt that on financial matters, Poilievre is a skilled eviscerator of Liberals. In Question Period, he has made Justin Trudeau and his Finance Minister look like fools on economic questions. On that basis, he’d make a good Finance Minister in a Conservative government.

However, we cannot endorse him for Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) because Poilievre is pro-abortion.

Above: Pierre Poilievre, MP for Kanata-Carleton (Source: Facebook)

Tragically, he abandoned his past pro-life beliefs during the previous leadership race when he was considering running, deciding that the “pro-life” label was no longer useful.

In January 2020, he promised the Quebec newspaper, La Presse, that under his leadership, no pro-life legislation would ever be introduced by a Poilievre government. He even went further, reassuring the left-wing outlet that even a private members bill would never be adopted.

In the same interview, he abandoned his long-time support for the natural definition of marriage and family, telling La Presse:

“I support gay marriages. Period. I voted against 15 years ago. But I learned a lot, like millions and millions of people across Canada and around the world. I find that gay marriage is a success.”

MP Poilievre has since followed through on his comforting reassurances to the media, with concrete actions.

On June 2, 2021, he voted against MP Cathay Wagantall’s common-sense private members bill (C-233) to criminalize sex-selective abortions.

Then, on June 22, 2021, he voted in favour of Bill C-6, a so-called “conversion therapy” ban to advance LGBT ideology and criminalize Christians who adhere to biblical sexuality – even jailing parents up to five years if they dare to affirm their gender-confused children in the biological bodies in which they were born!

To view Campaign Life’s official rating for Pierre Poilievre as an MP, click here.

Campaign Life Coalition will only endorse leadership candidates who are pro-life.

If a pro-abortion candidate like Poilievre offers meaningful policy commitments to social conservatives, (e.g. free votes on matters of conscience, ending Canadian taxpayer funding of overseas abortions), we’ll give them due credit.

However, we won't be able to green light them. And neither should pro-life CPC members, nor pro-life MPs, give their endorsement to pro-abortion candidates.

Who can pro-lifers support?

So far, Poilievre is the only candidate to officially declare his intention to run, but we expect there’ll be others.

We’re hoping that pro-life MP Dr. Leslyn Lewis will also throw her hat in the ring. Lewis won the popular vote in the previous leadership race, getting more votes on the second ballot than even Erin O’Toole, but losing in the end because of his stronger performance in points-rich Quebec ridings.

She polls well - even today - among Conservative members, even though she has not yet declared.

Since the previous leadership contest, Dr. Lewis has continued to be an advocate for the sanctity of life.

She spoke out strongly against Justin Trudeau’s plan to strip pro-life crisis pregnancy centres of their charitable tax status, and attended a rally organized by Campaign Life Coalition on November 24th to save those life-giving centres from Trudeau’s wrath.

Leslyn Lewis is a candidate we would happily endorse.

Campaign Life Coalition is also encouraging other pro-lifers to consider running, but we cannot reveal their names at this time. We do hope there will end up being at least two candidates who can appeal to values voters like you and me.

Anticipating the emergence of supportable candidates, CLC is encouraging you to join or renew your membership in the Conservative Party by clicking here.

Who else is running?

Others who’ve indicated they’re considering it include Quebec cinema mogul, Vincenzo Guzzo, and journalist Tasha Kheiriddin.

Guzzo owns the Cinemas Guzzo chain along with other businesses and joined the Dragon’s Den TV show in season 13 and 14. He recently tweeted that there’s a 70% chance he'll seek the CPC Leadership.

While Guzzo’s stance on the right to life is not yet known, it’s notable that in 2019 his was the only cinema chain in Canada that didn't censor the pro-life motion pictureUnplanned, from being screened.

Unplanned tells the story of Abby Johnson, a Planned Parenthood abortion facility manager turned pro-life activist.

Guzzo took a principled position that it was wrong to censor the film just because some might disagree with pro-life views. In contrast, Cineplex and Landmark Cinemas put up major roadblocks to block the movie.

Tasha Kheiriddin has been a columnist for numerous outlets including the National Post and Global News, and revealed she's also considering a run.

Kheiriddin is basically pro-abortion, arguing that while she finds some limits on abortion reasonable, it would be “indefensible” to ban all abortions.

In 2013, she co-authored a book titled Rescuing Canada’s Right which claimed that in order to be successful, the Conservative Party would need to rid itself of traditional social conservatism. (Of course, we disagree with her thesis -- the opposite is true!)

Since then, she has strongly criticized the Trudeau Liberals for inserting a pro-abortion attestation for employers to qualify in the Canada Summer Jobs program.

CLC is also hearing credible rumours that the disgraced, former PC Party of Ontario Leader, Patrick Brown, will run.

So-cons in Ontario will remember Brown’s painful betrayal and his transformation into a full-fledged liberal after winning the leadership on the promise of repealing Kathleen Wynne’s radical sex curriculum, only to turn around and endorse the sex program for early grades.

Brown would be a carbon copy of O'Toole if he were to win.

Social liberalism is the best predictor for future betrayal on small-c conservative principles

A truism that every CPC voter should consider, whether a fiscal conservative, a so-con, a democratic conservative, or a libertarian – is that history has proven that politicians who are not grounded in strong moral values cannot be trusted to keep any of their promises, even economic ones.

Just look at the example of Erin O’Toole. The pro-abortion MP promised to repeal the carbon tax, but after a bit of media pressure, and in the hope of winning some progressives votes, he came out with his very own carbon tax.

Doug Ford is another prime example. The pro-abort PC Leader campaigned with the slogan “Ontario. Open For Business”. And then proceeded to lockdown businesses for 2 years, destroying thousands of small and family businesses in the process.

The fact of the matter is that if you want to elect someone who will keep their promises, someone with tried-and-true integrity, you need to cast your ballot for a strong social conservative.

In a sense, they’ve already proven their mettle, passing through the gauntlet of pain. Such an individual has already suffered the trials of media persecution for their beliefs, and is practised in hanging onto their core principles, whether moral or economic ones.

The same cannot be said about social liberals who repeatedly shift to the left as soon as mainstream media pressure becomes too hot. 

Or, even sooner, once the votes of small-c conservatives have secured them the leadership crown and those "little people" are no longer considered to be as valuable in the general election. We witnessed this dynamic with Andrew Scheer, Doug Ford and O’Toole who all reversed or abandoned the very same leadership promises which helped secure their victories.

The fiscal conservative, democratic conservative and libertarian factions of the party’s base need to recognize that this inherent danger exists with Poilievre’s social liberalism.


A man who compromises on moral values can be too easily pushed to compromise on economic and freedom principles, also.

To look at it another way – if you’re willing to go along with the child murder of abortion, for political gain, how much more easily might you embrace leftist economic policy for a perceived political gain?

On that note, why did it take two years for Poilievre to come out against tyrannical vaccine mandates and lockdowns? And only after the huge freedom convoy arrived on parliament's doorstep, showing it had the numbers to be a political powerhouse?

Judging by the number of inquiries CLC is receiving from pro-lifers excited about Poilievre’s run, this is a warning that our own supporters must heed as well, along with pro-life Conservative MP’s, many of whom backed a pro-abortion candidate in the last leadership race despite the presences of viable so-cons.

We encourage you to pray that Leslyn Lewis and other strong pro-lifers will enter the CPC Leadership race, giving us a choice we can believe in.

In the meantime, don’t forget to become an eligible voter in the CPC leadership race by joining or renewing your membership.

Action 4 Canada: Stand up to Dictator Prime Minister and Premier of Canada



Protecting Faith, Family and Freedom




Dear Arthur,

Action4Canada is committed to giving the silent majority a voice through Call to Action campaigns. Please join us in the following ongoing campaigns against Justin Trudeau and Doug Ford. The pressure is building through opposition and it is important to maintain it.

As the House of COVID falls, the tyrants are desperately trying to ignore reality and hold onto power. They don’t care about how foolish or hypocritical they sound or look. They are ravenously devoted to the global agenda and they are willing to go the distance. However, their ship is sinking, the rats are dispersing and Trudeau and Ford are heading down a path of no return. Justice is coming and WILL prevail.


Let’s Start with Trudeau and the Liberal MPs

URGENT!!! Please continue to apply pressure to the Liberal MPs. It is critically important to demand they remove Trudeau as leader of the party and then resign.

These MPs have have aided and abetted Trudeau for two years (and longer) and are complicit to treason. Three liberal MPs have spoken out against Trudeau since Action4Canada commenced the letter writing/Call to Action campaign against the MPs two weeks ago. The massive public display of peaceful protest and opposition, initiated by the truckers, has ALL MPs frightfully aware that the gig is up and self-preservation is taking over as the MPs turn on their leader, and their party, in an effort to protect themselves from being criminally charged. Read More and Take ACTION!


Is there Repentance or Just Confession?


Joël Lightbound, a backbench lawmaker from Justin Trudeau’s own caucus, is accusing the prime minister of dividing and stigmatizing Canadians by politicizing vaccine mandates and COVID-19 restrictions. Lightbound did not mince words when he called out Trudeau:

“Both the tone and the policies of my government changed drastically on the eve, and during the last election campaign,” said Lightbound, who convened a press conference to deliver his message. “A decision was made to wedge, to divide and to stigmatize. I fear that this politicization of the pandemic risks undermining the public’s trust in our public health institutions.”

The timing of Lightbound’s press release is interesting, don’t you think?


Doug Ford: Hypocrite Extraordinaire

Do as I Say, Not as I Do

Whilst Ottawa was “under siege” by Trudeau’s fringe majority, our “leaders” were so concerned that Trudeau was reported to have gone skiing and Doug Ford was off snowmobiling in cottage country.

And what was Ford’s response when called out on it? He had nothing but excuses. Ontarians have lost their livelihoods, loved ones, and their freedom but Ford couldn’t care less. He is more interested in manifesting a fake narrative of a “City Under Siege” in a desperate effort to finish what he signed up for. So what does Ford do next? He deceitfully declares a state of emergency to end the ‘siege/illegal occupation” in Ottawa and Windsor.

“Fines for non-compliances will be severe”, the premier said, “with a maximum penalty of $100,000 and up to a year in prison”.

Let’s put things into perspective: the protest is peaceful; the streets are being cleaned; crime is down by 90%; the homeless are being cared for; and there is laughter, kindness and dancing in the streets.

What is there to justify Ford’s State of Emergency? There is no crime being committed, nothing has been set on fire or blown up, no one is being murdered and there is no vandalism.

So let’s get busy and take some more action! Contact Doug Ford and every one of his MPPs and request they cease and desist their illegal response toward law abiding peaceful protesters.

Share this Action!

Remember: Freedom of speech, thought, belief and the right to life, liberty and security of the person are guaranteed. We do not need to beg, barter or ask for them…they are ours for the taking.

Please consider becoming a monthly donor to help Action4Canada continue to bring solutions and hope to the nation!

God bless you and God bless Canada!
